There’s a Reason They Call It “Mother” Nature

Posted by Gregg Korrol on Apr 10, 2018 2:29:24 PM

I’ve spent a lot of time in my life watching nature. Aside from it’s beauty and magnificence, I find it is filled with lessons, many of which I point out in my book The Gifted Storyteller, and others which I blog about.

I recently posted a video on Facebook regarding relationships. One of the key lessons I stated was that in a relationship, when there’s an argument, when they go high, you go low. In other words, if s/he screams or gets loud, it’s important for you to pause, and respond in a low calm voice.

Doing the opposite does a few things:

  • De-escalates the situation
  • Gives you time to pause, breathe and respond, rather than react
  • Follows a law of nature

When the two North sides of a magnet are facing one another, they repel each other; there is tension and distance created. When the North faces the South, they attract one another. This lesson is applied to arguments as well. If you meet loud with loud, there will be tension and a “push,” distance is created. If you meet loud with low, there’s a “pull”, and your softness and calm demeanor, will alleviate the tension. It may take a little practice, but trust me - it works!

Your turn! Tell me –what are some things you do in your relationship to bring a calm feeling into a tense situation?

Playing the Relationship Stock Market

Posted by Gregg Korrol on Mar 21, 2018 1:38:25 PM

Stocks are a volatile game. You invest money into the market and pick stocks in the hopes they will go up. But the reality is, the market fluctuates from day to day, and while sometimes it is up, other times it goes down. This is the reality of stocks and something you have to accept if you want to invest.

That being said, most people make some very bad decisions around stocks. They buy when the market is high and they sell when the market is low. Great investors such as Warren Buffet, one of the greatest investors ever, said you have to buy and hold on to the investment, even when the price drops. If you made a solid investment, over time, the investment will increase and you will make a profit.

The concept is actually very similar in relationships. People get very excited when they first get involved, but when things get a little rough, they bail. They buy high and sell low. In order to have lasting love, you have to hold during the low times.

The Road To Valentine’s Day (Part 5)....

Posted by Gregg Korrol on Feb 7, 2018 2:26:18 PM

Welcome to February! So by now you are either getting excited about V-Day or freaking out (or you just don't care) about it. My last piece of advice, as far as this series of writings, is it is time to celebrate! While you may be thinking, I don't have anything to celebrate, I'm going to tell you - yes you do!

You see, when we see people who are happy and excited, we want to be near them, we want a piece of that energy and excitement! If you're walking around head down and in a blah or "everything sucks" mood, you're guaranteeing that no one will approach you. You need to celebrate all you have in life, from the little things like shadows on the ground and water drops on leaves, to the bigger things like the fact that you're alive, breathing and have somewhere call home.

The Law of Attraction means that you attract with your energy. Elevate your energy, move your body, sing, dance, smile at strangers that pass you on the street, and so forth.

Celebrate yourself and life, and watch what happens.
